29. I was more going by Tommy Douglas' hospital care.

By 1947, Saskatchewan had one of the strongest economies in Canada. After just three years as premier, Douglas made the province financially stable enough to introduce universal hospitalization for all residents of Saskatchewan for an annual fee of $5.

The Canada Health Act wasn't passed until 1984. And even still it's not a national system but one which each providence implements its own way to national standards.

That'd be 37 years of pushing hard for universal health care. Close enough.
